    That was really excellent, listening to the lady with anger issues. Listening to her made me appreciate all the good counseling I have gotten over the years. With that in mind, I wanted to sorta send a message to people who might be regular listeners, but who can’t afford to see a Christian therapist, perhaps because their insurance doesn’t cover “Christian” therapy. That was my situation for years, but then I prayed about it. God seemed to show me how there are all kinds of places in the Bible where He used, sometimes even people who were evil, to accomplish His will. I started really praying a lot before each appointment with my secular counselor, and even having this counselor pray with me at the beginning of each appointment, praying that God would give us both wisdom and insight and courage. Prayer turboboosted my secular therapy. Now, I am much better.

    I felt so bad for the last caller. Why is it when it rains it pours?

    things like that will happen as they often do but the advice and suggestions that were given to her should help with her healing but she must also put herself in a place; mentally and spiritually for that healing – It will happen.

      Just a thought: I didn’t listen to the show today, so I don’t know how the question of whether a husband was passive-aggressive or borderline was handled. I just want to say that one of the first steps toward healing is giving up the illusion of control. Labels (like passive-aggressive or borderline) are more about billing for services rendered than they are about getting better. The desire to label a person seems to me like a desire to control that person. Better perhaps to work on handling our own feelings responsibly than to try to control an uncontrollable person.
